History of Indian Springs

Like most modular layouts, we had a staging yard (well really two of them) on the inside of the layout. And not much to camaflage their existance. Lets face it, staging yards never look that good anyway.

Greg took the lead to develop something to hide the staging yards and to add a new section to the layout. It is an upper grade branch line that has a number of switching puzzels available. We expect that this will look complete by our February 2006 open house.
